Hello! It’s time to take a tour of my house ready for Fall. Let’s start in the Living/Family room. I do love Fall and keep it very simple. I don’t think you can compete with what’s going on outside during the fall. I love watching the leaves turn colors and the beautiful blue sky of fall. It’s such a remarkable time of the year.
The mister brought me fresh cotton, out of the field, displayed behind the sofa.
I have some models determined to be in this shot, Sonny, Layla and that foot belongs to Jacques.
There are Fall touches here and there. Velvet pumpkins on the round coffee table for now. There are dried hydrangeas on both skirted round tables. I have switched out the table skirts to warmer colors as shown with the red and a warm green.
I antiqued the picture frame surrounding the poppies and fall like trees. It was a dark brown and I didn’t care for it so I used some Rub n’ Buff on it. It’s right there to the right of the sofa and next to my bookcase. I think it came out pretty good!
Here is a close up for you. I don’t have the practice of making anything look older or distressed, I usually try to go the other direction!
You can see it better here. Right in front of the framed picture is a clear vase with my stems that I leave out year round. I covered the bottom of my stems in the clear vase with dried hydrangeas. I just stuffed them into the vase with the stems and the bottom of them is now covered. It was easy to do and no cost!

Aubergine berries and faux leaves sit atop the pine coffee table.
This table has vintage photos of family, dried hydrangeas and bird’s nest all sitting fall-like here.

This was my first mantel decorating for the Fall. It could stay all the way until Christmas if I had not changed it.
I shared my dining table and buffet. This is one large room with the kitchen to the left of the table in this photo. You can see the beginning of the cabinets at the top left of the photo.
This photo is a miracle for me. I have a lot of difficulty photographing in my kitchen with the fluorescent lights. That’s the tour for now but I am sure I will be changing things up so stay tuned…..
